First Look: Legion Day Pack from Cannae

We recently received the Legion Day Pack from Cannae, and upon initial inspection it looks pretty rugged but the first thing we noticed going through the pack wasn't what you might normally pick up on — it has a pretty unique zipper-opening configuration. The track of the main pocket zipper is different than most packs. It runs up the side to the top, then inward toward the wearer nearly to the shoulder straps before moving across the top and back down in an L shape. Though not a full clam shell, this design gave us the ability to easily access deeper contents within by simply cracking the top and peeling it back (though you can also open it up much further, in a fashion similar to small luggage). This can also be done without doffing the pack if you have a partner standing behind you.

Inside the main pocket is a laptop compartment lined with a soft velvet-like material. Also in this pocket are two tie down straps and a decently sized mesh, zippered pocket.

This might be a little difficult to follow in written form — watch the video below for further information, though keep in mind it's not a review but rather a product description from the manufacturer.

On the front of the Legion Day Pack is a pocket specifically for our eyepro or sunglasses. It's lined with the same velvet-like material as the laptop compartment. Just below the eye-wear pocket is a front pocket admin-organizer. Further within this pocket are a total of four open and zipped pockets, as well as a hanging hook clip and a port for headphones — this latter is a pretty nice touch, allowing you as it does to listen to music or podcasts or whatever as you walk, ruck or travel.

Moving to the “back” of the Legion Day Pack, beneath the shoulder straps, one finds a pocket purposed for  2-liter water bladder (although we could find no port for its hose) or the concealed carry of a handgun. There are an additional two pockets located on either side for 1-liter Nalgene style water bottles or a couple of rifle mags.

On the outside of the bag there are four heavy-duty D rings located on the top, the front, and one on each side. The Legion Day Pack is also equipped with four external tie-down straps and 37 mil-spec MOLLE attachment points for modular.

All things considered, the most important feature of a pack is the balance of comfort and load carriage. The back of the Legion feels firm and contours well to the back of the wearer (at least this wearer) while providing some lower back support. Boasting as it does the ability to haul 21 liters, we think this pack has great potential.

We intend to run this pack through the mill and abuse the hell out of it over the next few of months and will report further. Until then you can check out all of Cannae's bags and apparel here. Check back with us for the full review.
